World's first production-ready solar-powered car unveiled

With the world in the grip of both an energy crisis and a climate crisis, the need to move to sustainable forms of transport energy has never been greater, but it’s being stymied by a toxic combination of sluggish legislation, slow charging system roll-outs, and consumers either not having the cash to make the great electric leap, or simply not yet trusting that they’ll be able to charge when they need to.

Solar power seems like an obvious step — all of Earth’s energy, fundamentally, comes from the sun, it’s just that we’ve been extracting it from carbon-heavy sources for too long. Why not cut out the middle-man and just put the power of the sun straight into your car?

Well, Dutch startup Lightyear plans to put the sun on wheels, and on your driveway.

The Lightyear 0 is a partly-solar-powered car which its makers claim can top itself up each day thanks to massed ranks of solar cells spread across its roof and bonnet.
